Most Helpful Positive Review Love this little palette!
I received the smoky palette complimentary from Influenster in exchange for my honest review. First of all, the size of the palette is wonderful. I travel with my makeup a lot, and most of my go-to palettes are huge The size of this one save so much room in my makeup bag. The colors are nicely pigmented, and it has a variety of mattes and shimmer shadows The very light matte color could be bit more pigmented, but I honestly don't use that color very often. These eye shadows blend beautifully...even better than my $60 eye shadow palette. The dark colors even make a great eyeliner when using a wet eyeliner brush. I love these little palettes, and I plan to buy more!
Most Helpful Critical Review Nicer in the Palette
The softlight palette has beautiful packaging and the colors are gorgeous, however, they did not show up as pigmented on my melanin skin. The colors are also very soft and easy to apply but I had to apply multiple layers to get any type of pay off. The other downside to the Softlight Palette is that it doesn't have any mattes/transition colors so I used another brand for that. Overall I think I would enjoy one of the other covershot palettes more since the colors are deeper and more pigmented. This product was sent to me by Influenster for free for testing and the opinion/review above is my own
Reviewed by 497 customers BEST NEUTRAL PALETTE
Egg from Alabama
I cant say enough about this palette. It's so perfect for any neutral, cool toned eye look. Everything blends so well and all of the shades are amazing even though there are just 8 of them!! The two shimmers are so pretty and just bring out the right highlight on your eyes. 10/10 highly recommend
Not the best
Dog lady from Crozet, VA
difficult to control the amount on applicator due to powder being too fine
Love the Matte Colors!
DJ in NJ from New Jersey
Love that this is a matte palette, colors are gorgeous and I love Smashbox!
CarolNV from Sparks, NV
I wish I had found this a long time ago. It is so much better quality than UD naturals which I have been using. The quality of that product is just so-so and I was on the search for something better. I found it with this product. Not only are the colors better, but the texture, and wear. More colors to choose from that won't be thrown away, also. But I'm most impressed with the quality. It glides on so well and stays on all day without touch-up.
Love the colors and the size!
Kate from New Jersey
I love the Urban Decay Naked palette - the one they discontinued - so when I hit the pan on one of the mattes I searched for a replacement palette for a while and finally pulled the trigger on this one after going back and forth between this and a palette by another brand. I'm so glad I went with this one! It's perfect for a neutral everyday pretty look, the colors are beautiful, they're pigmented and blend well, and they're long lasting. I like that the palette is small because I don't wear makeup every day so I don't need something big with a ton of colors, also it's easy to travel with, so it's perfect for me.
Beautiful warm colors!
Amanda from TX from Houston, TX
I really like this palette. The colors are warm and the pigmentation is great. I do not prefer dramatic makeup so these suit me well as someone who likes a more conservative put posh look.
Great Neutral Palatte
K9Carr from Sacramento, CA
This is a great neutral palatte a good selection of browns, light, medium and darks and shimmers. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is I find Smashbox shadows a little less blendable than others. But Smashbox does have good wear.
First time buyer of this brand
Margaret from Tennessee
I absolutely love this eye shadow palette! It stays on all day and the colors are vibrant and beautiful!
IT IS SO SMALL!!!! FYI
Jules from Boston, MA
I bought this thinking it was a full size palette. Instead, it is about the same size as the mini Naked palettes from Urban Decay. It is no bigger than 4 inches. A mini palette for sure. I need nudes because thats what i wear most, so I got all Minimalist, with all nudes... i had to put on 4 different shades of color just to have my eyelides be brown. Kind of pointless. Oh well.
goes on easy, difficult to blend
ashley from Brooklyn, NY
I love the colors. It's great for when you want to go from day look to night look, natural look to dramatic look. The package is super cute and compact, perfect for on the go. I love that the formula is paraben and talc-free.The only con I have (like with everyone else) is that it is very hard to blend. I have to use a bit of force to get it to blend.
My new favorite palette!
Mel AZ from Arizona
I've been using this palette as my daily shadow and love the coverage of these colors. The mix of colors compliments and blends well. I use the darkest shade as my liner.
Love the Matte colors
Street Reality from Spokane, WA
It's actually my fav
PosiVibes from DC
This is a GREAT palette for work, gym, or for a chic look. The colors blend really well and stay on all day (with primer, still good staying power without, better with)
PosiVibes from DC
Just submitted review saying the colors were off, but I was wrong since I bought two palettes and got confused.
Anyway, these are gorgeous! I have brown eyes and light skin. These are subtle and rich and bendable. Stays on all day (with primer). Even went swimming and there was still a nice wash of color on my lids after one dip (came off after a few more, but hey)
The shimmers I could wear everyday they are so gorgeous and pair well with all the shades. Not too much glitter. Creates sultry looks.
PosiVibes from DC
The online pic doesn't show the colors to the right at all, but I liked it BETTER. They are pink, mauve, and black.
This palette is ultra chic and natural looking. Gives a wash of color for work, gym, or play settings!
I have brown eyes and light skin. Everything blends in to a shade that isn't overdone. Stays on all day (with primer, good staying power without but works better with)
Great eye shadow... My fav!

Michelle from Dallas, TX
Came damaged - sides were torn.. I wish this would have been checked before sending.
Love this palette
Definitely a go to! from New York
Goes with natural every day looks.
LaurieL from Merritt Island, Florida
I have quite a large collection of eyeshadow palettes, from many different brands, including several Smashbox palettes, but I think of all of them, this one is my favorite! Goes on smoothly, never creases, very little fallout, and the colors are great for many different looks. This is probably the palette I use the most!
Sea Mother from NV
This brand is beyond higher quality than your basic shadow pallet. The quality is worth the extra money spent!!
Golden Hour Palette
Jess from US
Love this!! It's my new casual everyday go to! Every combination I've tried so far has looked great. Blends very well & makes my eyes pop without much effort.
I am deeply disappointed
Lisa from Los Angeles
I found out this this product uses mica, an ingredient mined by children in India, who are making less than $0.25 a day for the risk of their lives. There are better alternatives and I expect smash box to be more considerate.
New go to pallet!
Cookey from Bloomington, IN
I absolutely love how someone finallllllly understands we need more of the base color! The shadow goes on well maintains coverage (used with smash box picture perfect primer) all day and doesn't crease. The color pallets are the perfect neutral with that touch of pink. Very pretty with a touch of luster. My new go to pallet.
Love the colors
Marie from Colorado
I'm using the eyeshadows daily to enhance my eyes.
